Road Trip Through Northern Argentina

Our early retirement slow travel adventures have brought us to northern Argentina. We're on a 7 day roadtrip to explore the provinces of Salta and JuJuy. We hiked through the quebradas near Cafayate and Cachi, visited the multi-colours mountains around Purmamarca and Humahuaca, walked on the Salinas Grandes salt flats, saw 500 year old incan sites at Barrancas, drove, and got stuck on, on the famous Ruta 40, and surrounded ourselves in fields of cacti and amazing rock formations. But driving a car in a new country takes some getting used to. Here's what it was like to take a road trip around Salta and JuJuy in northern Argentina..

Why We Chose Slow Long-Term Travel Instead of a Permanent Expat Move

When we first started our early retirement, we thought we wanted to travel full-time and maybe even take up residence in a new country as expats. But as we thought about it more, we realized that's not exactly what we wanted. We still wanted to travel long-term, but we didn't want to give up our residency in our home country. This video is all about how we balance our long-term travels while maintaining our home country residency in Canada.
